I can imagine them lovingly packing their tapes and mailing them to Leicester were the label was based. I couldn’t confirm it but they must have been from the UK, England most probably. If you haven’t checked them out yet we have one of their songs streaming on Sound Cloud.I look for any Brickfields in the UK, maybe it was a town there? I do find one more Brickfields, and this could be probably my best bet. In this area there is a nature reserve called The Blue Lagoon. Check out “Detective” and you can of course order the record from our website. Those who are on Instagram and follow me might have seen the work in process form the artwork for our next Cloudberry Cake Kitchen release. We are doing a full retrospective for The County Fathers from Manchester! Well, as this is the last post of the year, of course I have to wish you all a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!
——————————————————– It was many months, maybe a year or more, when I wrote about a obscure band called North By North West on the blog.
Here Rose sings duet with her long time friend Larissa who plays in the band Fake Tears. As much as I dislike streaming music, I prefer that over tapes. So now I find myself checking the catalogue out and find that in February this Seattle band released a tape album titled “Super Genuine” which is actually really nice!
The digital track is sold for a buck and all proceeds are to be donated to Girls Rock Camp Vancouver. There are eleven songs of introspective pop, sweet and melancholic.
The band is formed by Caitlin Roberts, Pamela Santiago, Leena Joshi and Inge Chiles. Shrouded Amps: one more from this tape label from the Northwest.
This band formed by Tracey Vath (bass, vocals), Matthew Budden (guitars, vocals) and Eirinn M.
The songs are “Chocolate Church”, “Cross-Cat to the Black Path”, “When You Asked”, “Flags”, “Concerning Naming Children” and “Lost Creature Land”.
